ETDWare PS/2-X64 11.5.2.1_WHQL

What is ETDWare PS/2-X64 _WHQL?

ETDWare PS/2-X64 11.5.2.1_WHQL is the device driver installed for an Elan Microelectronics Touch Pad. ELAN's Smart Click-Pad eliminates the need of physical buttons since the entire touchpad functions as buttons. User can click almost anywhere on the touchpad to simulate the mouse left or right button click. It's different from traditional touchpad, because it can support multi-finger gesture to let the user interact with their laptop more intuitively.

Overview

During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The primary executable is named etdctrl.exe. The setup package generally installs about 19 files and is usually about 37.83 MB (39,662,858 bytes).
